January showers bring February flowers? Yes, the phrasing might need a little work, but florals and playful prints are popular now and will continue to be popular in the springtime. This season, romantic styles are back – so don’t be afraid to mix your floral prints with more avant-garde elements like chiffon or a sheer top to look especially fashion-forward.

A trend from fall that’s overflowing into spring – heeled, leather boots are a must for this season. (Studs and other adornments optional, not required.) Not only do they provide a tough counterpart to springy florals and pastels, but they’re perfect for a fashion girl on the go.  The thick sole is both comfortable and functional, and the variety of options means you’re bound to find your perfect shoe – no matter what specifics you’re looking for!


MaxMara, Vionnet, Prada S/S 2016

Pantone may have selected Rose Quartz and Serenity as the colors of 2016, but don’t let that trick you into thinking those are the only two pastels you’ll see this season. Seen on runways from Tibi to Prada, this year is all about pastels. Wear your favorite light shades straight through Easter season. Pale blue, mint, light pink, lilac pieces will take you straight from winter to spring and beyond.

Who says that sparkle is just for New Year’s Eve? Instead of putting your sequined items in the back of your closet, keep them at the forefront to add pop to your wardrobe.  By sticking with sequined pieces in lighter shades (i.e. silver, blush, or white gold), your outfit will transition into warmer weather with a touch of  festive glitz.

From Netflix and chill to Sunday brunch, fashion is moving away from athleisure towards silky, pajama-esque loungewear. It’s perfect for hanging out inside and watching the snow fall – and strolling through the park once the sun comes out.  Plus, if you’re looking to add shine to your wardrobe but don’t think sequins are for you, this is a subtle way to add new textures to your closet.

Global Inspired

For fall 2015, hippie chic made a comeback on the runway and in stores. ’70s inspired looks aren’t going anywhere, but the trend is expanding into globally influenced-wear with fabrics and patterns from countries across the globe. This includes Victorian ruffles, matador red hues, and British-inspired plaids – the more you mix and match, the more on trend you are.
